I have just finished it and enjoyed it very much. The storyline is cute and the narrative fast-paced. Looking forward to the next one.
I picked this one up at St Ives Medieval Faire 2018

I really enjoyed this - it was like the "behind the scenes" of a dungeon crawl. Who resets the traps? Who clears away the bodies of the previous adventurers? Just what do goblins and orcs do in their downtime anyway? It was quite a lot of fun. I would have loved to give this four stars.

But while I'm happy to overlook a handful of SPaG errors (especially if what I'm reading is indie published), this book was littered with them and it was very distracting. For that I've knocked a star off.
